The data from  StakingRewards further reveals that 73% of circulating ADA are being staked, since Cardano’s entire capitalization currently stands at $36.6 billion. The crypto analytics firm’s estimate shows that Cardano stakers are earning an annual reward of 7.22%.

As for Polkadot (DOT), its total staking represents 64% of its circulating supply, while stakers earn an annual reward of over 13%.

While Cardano and Polkadot remain the dominant force in the staking sector by locked value, other leading digital currencies have experienced significant disruptions to their rankings lately.

As it stands now, Solana (SOL) has now surpassed Ethereum (ETH) to occupy the third position for staked value, with $9.4 billion, while Ethereum 2.0 manages just $8.064 billion of total staked value.

SOL staking and validation require the asset to be time-locked up and taken out of circulation, which may explain why its staked capitalization exceeds its relatively $8 billion market capitalization. According to StakingRewards, Solana (SOL) annual staking rewards stand at 11%.
